I'll pass. One less place on the internet that is gathering info on me to spam me to death...

I do subscribe to the Spotify music service. They seem to be closely linked to FB, so they probably got me anyway.

My bet is on a Black Suede XC with Black out trim, like the Nuclear Orange Suede.......... Everyone has wondered why no black being available with black out package.

I know the answer, and I bet you won't address it.
They seem to have their own business model. Run a new line for a few years and then render the old lines obsolete. It doesn't make sense to me, but hey, it seems to work in the short term for them.

I was on FB for a few months when I first started to ride street bikes 5 years ago so I could share pics with my riding buddies. Found out fast that it was just another advertising scam and half the people that were my "friends" I really didn't like back years ago. I guess I am just getting old even though I am my mid-thirties or I just don't really care, one of the two.

Concur SB. I subscribe to a really great Touring magazine and they have a chance to win a nice prize if you "like" them on FB. I wrote them a sincere email and they did offer to enter me into the sweepstakes if I provided name, address, phone and email address and they would enter me manually. I thought that was nice, but I still get irritated with FB getting their grubby paws into my motorcycle forums and subscriptions. Ahhhhhhh progress huh?

1. Social media kind of suggests being social and accepting media as value added.
2. Faddy superflous crap that may start with and have some limited value but ends up providing an unnecessary service, f.i. Facebook, has to pass beyond "popular" before Pop would consider it.
2. I have 50 odd years of not liking and not being liked. I'm not throwing all that away.
3. I don't wear tinfoil skullcaps but I don't see anything wrong with it and gravitate towards peeps that do. Their profiles do not appear on Facebook either.
4. Adding another drop in the bucket to the Zuckerberg fortune. Remind me what benefit Pop gets besides that one in a gazillion shot at a bike I haven't seen.
5. I pay my taxes. They are used to, among other things, pay folks who keep files on us taxpayers. Think of the impact if everybody's stuff was out there in "profiles". Unemployed spooks unable to feed their spook kids. File cabinet manufacturers forced into receivership. Oh the humanity.

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go

I have no problem with fb and rather enjoy staying in touch with friends on it. What I am tired of is this "tease" marketing that Victory keeps using. Just show us the bike already and get on with it!!!
